We are located in downtown Ben Wheeler, TX and we are here to help with your custom knife needs. We are the home of Djinn Knives, handmade knives by experienced Bladesmith Johnathan Sibley. You may have seen him on Season 5 Episode 10 of the History Channel's show Forged In Fire. He has been making knives over 35 years. He takes pride in his knives being fully functional as well as aesthetically pleasing.  Not only can you purchase his handmade knives here but you can learn from him how to make your very own knife in our knifemaking classes. Or come check us out on the 4th Saturday of the month and watch him do a live forging demo out in front of the shop!
